Fire island is a variety I bought last year.  Weak growing then ....well it was a small,plant to start with......but I have high hopes for it this year.  White feather would not grow well down here either...light levels are so high that even light sun would bleach it.

charley,,the virus is something that wont just go away.  No cure and, apparently, is highly contagious

Barry, digging up bindweed is worst possible action to take.  With respect, anyone doing this, no matter how dark it is......roots will seek out the light.......will simply propagate dramatically

Pretty much the same regime Lulu.  However, there is a stronger glyphosate spray and prob best to use this.

Peanuts, just think they won't grow much after October outside.  They are a little tender or at least can be spoiled over winter and if planted in spring will grow fast and develop some toughness before the following winter

Better than taking photos Luke, show off your products.  of course, ask to speak,to,the manager.  And stress local product.  Priced reasonably you could make a penny or two, or three.  Good luck.

Bindweed Roots

Bind weed really is easy to eradicate.  I've done it.  Others too.

spray it when there is a decent amount of new growth in early spring. Glyphosate will not work in the winter, etc and needs actively growing foliage to be effective.  A dry day is essential...... 6 hours or so needed after application.  Then during the growing season spray any new growth seen.  3 or 4 times right through to early September will be very effective. Any new growth seen in the following season should be treated.  I have no bindweed in my garden despite having plenty of it a few years back.
